Stora Enso’s and its predecessors (e.g. Enso-Gutzeit) physical, paper format shares have had no financial value since 14 June 2012.
 
Background:
Stora Enso’s and its predecessors (e.g. Enso-Gutzeit) physical, paper format shares have not been in active use since the shares were transferred to the book-entry system, but have been held in a joint book entry account. In 2001 Stora Enso’s Annual General Meeting approved the sale of Stora Enso shares that were not transferred to the book-entry system on behalf of their owners. On 5 June 2002, Stora Enso sold the shares (in total 7 121 series A and 23 100 series R shares) which were not transferred to the book-entry system by that date.
 
The owners of or other holders of rights over the shares that were in this joint book-entry account were entitled to claim from the sale an amount proportional to their shares. The amount was paid from the net sale proceeds deposited with the Provincial State Office of Southern Finland against share certificates or any other title documents. The right to claim from the deposited funds expired after ten years, 14 June 2012. For more information, please contact Investor Relations team or financial communications.
